Storyline

1830s Paris. Novelist George Sand, who is known to be writing her memoirs, is causing a sensation in the literary scene not only for the quality of her writing, but because of her extreme views and manners, including blurring the lines between the sexes - she generally wearing men's clothes - and her non-belief in the sanctity of marriage after having gone through the institution once before, now preferring sexual liaisons outside of her own wedlock, with the marital status of her lovers of no concern to her. She is just coming to the end of a turbulent affair with Félicien Mallefille, who she is now trying to avoid in his continual pursuit of her.

Loved it!
17 September 2003 | by (Metro Boston) – See all my reviews

Recently re-watched this movie and I am going to buy some of Chopin's music. I just loved the story and the acting-I thought Judy Davis and Hugh Grant were fantastic. It is the kind of a story that remains in the back of your mind and need to watch it over again--that is my mark of a great movie!
